Nokia has been sold to Microsoft last month, but it seems that it did not demoralize the Finnish maker even by the slightest degree. And therefore they are still aimed at presenting the customers with the best devices they can. It is because of this reason that they are determined at launching a series of devices, one of which is a tablet computer which is also their first tablet computer launch. The device was released in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

Nokia Officially To End The Symbian OS With PureView 808

by GULLIVER - on Jan 25th 2013 - No Comments

Nokia first displayed the 808 PureView at the Mobile World Congress in February 2012. The main feature of the mobile handset was its 41 MP camera. Besides the above the 808 PureView displayed the Symbian OS as its main operating system. This was a strange choice considering the close partnership of the mobile manufacturer with Microsoft.

Nokia has in the past released its quarterly report about the future of its Symbian platform. During the transition to the Windows OS phone in 2012 the Company had continued to ship those devices that are based on the Symbian platform. The Nokia 808 PureView is a mobile handset that showcases rich imaging abilities that came to the market in the middle of 2012. This was the last Symbian mobile handset launched by Nokia. This news comes along with the total earnings report of the company that sported a $585 million profit as well as $10.83 billion as revenue. As for cash flow the company is doing well. The Symbian platform is not drawing its fair share of sales in this last quarter.

 Nokia had managed to sell about 2.2 million Symbian devices, 9.3 million devices under the Asha brand and 4.4 million Lumia Windows Phone devices. These figures were sufficient for the company to bring Symbian to an end. It is interesting enough that the rumors of a 41 MP Windows Phone 8 replacement to the 808 PureView have begun to appear as well. When it comes to the Symbian platform you will find that both Android and the iOS platform rule the mobile market in the present times. So it is obvious that no one will miss a platform that is an aging one. There are analysts who are of the opinion that the Symbian platform is all set to make a quiet exit just in the same manner the webOS did. Now, in case you do not know what webOS is you must have understood the above point.

Nokia will not leave Symbian totally behind when it comes to support. It has entered into an agreement with Accenture to give software development and support to the Symbian platform till 2016. In 2011 in October about 2800 Nokia employees were provided jobs at Accenture. Now, if you are a Symbian fan it is time for you to miss it. However you should also welcome the new OS by the company and hope it is as popular as its predecessor.
